    Get Oubre resigned and it's not a terrible off-season. The draft is full of question marks - Johnson/Jerome better not be total flops, or someone needs to answer for that. But get Oubre back and the team as a whole has probably improved, if not by an enormous measure.

    Conley is definitely an upgrade for them. You said Rubio couldn’t be a starter for a playoff team... but he was.

    Depends on your definition of terrible - but it certainly is a bad offseason.

    If that is how you took it, I must not have phrased it correctly.

    What I meant is no playoff team wants him to play for them.

    Offensively, that's exactly what we needed...except I remain concerned that opposing defenses will sag and just dare Rubio to shoot...

    Every team, even play off teams, have one guy the other teams sag off of.

    Well, not as good as we could wish, for sure. But not as awful as I could easily imagine them doing... this is the Suns we're talking about, so have to grade on a curve.

    And Oubre is not resigned yet, so it could still be a disaster.

    Oh my. Of course he makes them better. He knows how to pass the ball into the post. He is still a decent defender, and his outside shooting has improved to slighly below average. He takes bringing the ball up pressure off of Book and makes Ayton better.

    Except he was the starting PG on a playoff team. So why claim he's not?

    Yeah - but it's not supposed to be the PG.

    This is the way to look at it. Ayton, Oubre, Bridges and Booker are their core.
